We have been to the restaurant numerous times in the past, but hadn't had a chance to in about three months. We stopped here on the way up to the hospital so we were under a time crunch. After having placed our drink order we went up to the buffet. Started out ok. typical offerings of vats of soup, puff doughnuts, steamed wontons..then the further down the buffet we went, the smaller and more dried out looking the food became. Ribs looked like they were well on their way to becoming dehydrated, clams on the half shell floating in greasy water, when I lifted the lid to the lo-mein a horrible spoiled smell came out from it. First time I've spent 20$ on dinner and only ate Chinese tea and puff doughnuts...If we were not in such a hurry we would have left immediately,
As it is, I will be contacting the board of health to issue a complaint. no one should be serving food this terrible. We will never go back there again!

Visited after a blizzard which was clearly our first mistake. The food looked and tasted like it had been cooked and reheated several times because of the lack of customers. First time I've ever left a restaurant without eating.

This is a great Chinese buffet. They have a huge variety of meals, Chinese and some American. The dishes are very tasty and includes snow crab and fresh sushi made on the premises throughout the dinner service.

The only reason I gave this a 4 instead of a 5 is that some of the meals get a little tired by the end of the dinner service if a lot of people don't take it. That being said, there are so many items, you can just skip what doesn't appeal and there's still more than enough to fill a couple of plates.

When you look at the food such as the Generals chicken and hot and spicy chicken you can see the freshness and care in in preparation. The staff is very attentive to the levels and bring fresh prepared items out constantly.You can avoid fried food altogether and still have a good time with several dishes and steamed vegetables. The hot and sour soup is excellent.Sushi rolls,crab rangoon and the rice and pasta dishes are some of my favorites.We are "forced" to eat here every week due to a meeting held here,but we all look forward to it to get our fix.Great choices and very inexpensive.

We all know, chinese buffets can be utterly disgusting but this one was actually pretty good. They serve a nice variety of sushi on the buffet line and it's pretty good. They have a variety of soups. They even had green tea ice cream for dessert but it wasn't my thing, but they're not losing marks because of that. I would say the other buffet place in town has a better price / quality ratio but despite being slightly more expensive their is a noticeable better quality.
